Companies, to successfully meet new global challenges, need access to highly skilled technical personnel capable of extracting value from the pervasiveness of new technologies, artificial intelligence, and IoT across all business processes. New technicians will therefore need an in-depth knowledge of the technology and, at the same time, they should be able to appreciate its spillovers and impact on organizational processes and functions.
In the PhD Programme in Computer Science and Engineering with a major in Artificial Intelligence and Innovation Management of the University of Bologna, we aim to train the next generation of computer scientists and engineers, equipping them with cutting-edge technical competencies and a solid background in innovation management.
The 3 year PhD Programme is offered by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, in partnership with the Department of Management and Bologna Business School, in collaboration with:
CINECA CONSORZIO INTERUNIVERSITARIO DALLARA AUTOMOBILI FAAC FERRARI G. D. HPE LAMBORGHINI AUTOMOBILI MARCHESINI GROUP MER MEC SACMI SCM GROUP
We are looking for a group of talented individuals, with a solid background in computer science and engineering, willing to engage in real-world management-related challenges.
We offer 15 doctoral scholarships of a total gross amount of €70,000 (including gross salary and research allowances). Each scholarship is linked to a specific company project and, subject to the approval of the scientific committee, is increased by €20,000.
